Description / Abstract:

1. Scope

1.1 This test method provides a procedure for determining the ability of photovoltaic modules to withstand immersion or splash exposure by fresh or seawater as might be encountered when installed in a marine environment. This is one of several tests, including environmental cycling exposure and exposure to a corrosive environment, that are intended to provide an accelerated basis for evaluating the aging effects of a marine environment on module materials and construction specific to marine applications.

1.2 This test method defines photovoltaic module test specimens and requirements for positioning modules for test, references suitable methods for determining changes in electrical performance and characteristics, and specifies parameters which must be recorded and reported.

1.3 This test method does not establish pass or fail levels. The determination of acceptable or unacceptable results is beyond the scope of this test method.

1.4 Units--The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
